He's a wanted man, in more ways than one.

Edward Snowden, the fugitive spy-agency contractor, has been proposed to by superstar Russian spy Anna Chapman.

Chapman, a glamorous spy-turned-lingerie model, proposed to Snowden via twitter, reported Reuters. 

“Snowden, will you marry me?!” she tweeted.

After a few hours with no response, Chapman tweeted again, including the US National Security Agency:

"@nsa, will you look after our children?"

Snowden had not yet responded to her tweet.

When the Wall Street Journal asked Chapman whether her proposal was serious, she said “you are welcome to use your imagination.”

Chapman was one of 10 Russian agents arrested in the United States and deported in a spy swap in 2010.

Former NSA contractor Snowden was believed to have been living in the Moscow airport since arriving on June 23. He had appealed to various countries for asylum.

He recently applied for Icelandic citizenship, but failed when the country's parliament voted not to debate it before the summer recess.

The vote left Snowden with one option fewer as he seeks a country to shelter him from US espionage charges.
